IF/THEN is a contemporary Broadway musical about living in New York today and all the possibilities of tomorrow. It follows Elizabeth, a city planner who moves back to New York to restart her life in the city of dreams. On the verge of turning 40, her smallest decisions and most random occurrences impact her world in ways she never dreamed possible. When her carefully designed plans collide with the whims of fate, Elizabeth's life splits into two parallel paths and the play follows both stories simultaneously as this modern woman faces the intersection of choice and chance.
